GT settles on backup QB
By Heather Dinich
While Virginia Tech is still unsettled at its backup quarterback position, Coastal Division opponent Georgia Tech found an answer there this spring.
Sophomore quarterback Tevin Washington accounted for four touchdowns to lead the White past the Gold, 27-7, in Georgia Tech's spring game on Saturday. The game was cut short because of severe weather, but not before Washington completed 6 of 7 passes for 122 yards, including a perfect 70-yard touchdown pass to Stephen Hill that gave the White team a 21-7 lead. Hill finished with three receptions for 105 yards -- a good sign for a team trying to replace one of the country's top receivers in Demaryius Thomas.
Washington and redshirt freshmen Jordan Luallen and David Sims competed this spring to back up Josh Nesbitt, who sat out the practices after having minor surgery on his ankle.
Anthony Allen rushed 15 times for 91 yards. Washington rushed 10 times for 35 yards and three touchdowns, and produced 157 yards of total offense.
